I think there have been 12 today

 

choosing to ignore them only blocks the content....

 

viewed on on an iPad it fills the screen....it's beginning to annoy me now and is going on my Grumpy list . This is considered by many to not be a 'good place'

I have him blocked too, but it still remains on the activity list.

 

We aren't even allowed to reply to his threads, pointless

Who is that mysterious poster anyway, must admit I feel we would be better of with their posts, clogs up the forum as far as I am concerned.

Since they have stared to appear I have only opened up and looked at a couple of the articles, so on the grand schemes of things as far as I'm concerned they are not worth it, get rid.

I'm presuming it's a source of income for the site, as the thread titles and content will bring traffic through the site.

I tried the ignore function, now I can’t get rid of SI’s posts using the “mark forum read” function.

I've put a report in to the moderators. Lets see if they can beat it in to submission.

Is there any way the SI posts could be pre "marked as read" by everyone so they don't appear in the "unread content" view?

 

Then perhaps one summary post per day by SI that does show in the unread view.

 

At the moment it seems to show that SI makes more posts on the forum than everyone else put together.

What's going on here?

 

LOTS of posts by SI showing BEFORE posts in the "last hour"

 

Oh I have got it now, showing with a posting date of 30th November 2017 i.e 3 days from now.

 

Something has gone WRONG somewhere and it's getting bloody annoying.

Is there a way you can block a user so you don't see their post's? Perhaps that will clear my screen?

If you " follow" areas of the forum you can filter the new content list and thus exclude results from the misbehaving social integrator. Best work around until a suitable punishment can be found to prevent social integrator bad behavior
